With jessie entering LTS we are following up with shutting down
jessie-backports (and jessie-backports-sloppy). We deprecated LTS
support for backports already with the release of stretch, and a thread
that we started on debian-backports about it didn't raise any new ideas
how to make this working, so if you are using backports on jessie we
suggest you to take this as a strong recommendation to finally do the
upgrade to stretch.
Almost 2000 packages were uploaded to jessie-backports during its life
cycle, and nearly 100 to jessie-backports-sloppy. We thank all the
contributors for their continued effort to keep these package in a good
shape, which added to the usefulness of the Debian ecosystem.
The suites will soon be moved to the archive, no new upload will get
processed, and it is planned to get removed from the regular mirror
network to reduce confusion about continuing support of it.
Rhonda on behalf of the backports ftp-master team
